    Default Replacement heatsink+fan for Core100HT-BD

    As per the subject, I'm looking for the CPU heatsink+fan assembly for a Core100HT-BD HTPC. This seems to be a custom part as its a CPU heatsink with the fan blowing/venting from the side. As per the pic(http://images.anandtech.com/doci/3824/p-06_575px.JPG). Anyone have any idea where this can be sourced please?


    The HTPC is kept on 24/7 and has been for the past 4-5 years, so now, even at idle, the fans seem to be quite noisy. Other than that, the HTPC is still working great, so want to just replace the fans.

    Welcome to the forum.

    HardwareSecrets says that it is a 50mm fan.

    You' will need find a similar fan that has the same dimensions, provides adequate airflow and hopefully is quieter.

    A web search using: 50mm computer cooling fan will provide links to companies that sell similar fans.

    Hopefully your fan's dimensions are standard for a 50mm fan and the fan's mounting holes have standard dimensions.

    The cpu heatsink might be OK after you clean out all of the accumulated dust and dirt.

    It will make it much easier to find a compatible fan if there is a sticker on the fan hub with the model number, for example:

    Maybe so, but what voltage is the original? 5v or 12v??????

    That is the question

    If the fan has a label similar to the picture in my previous post, it might include the voltage information and if the fan's model number is on the sticker we can probably search the web and discover the fan's speed and/or airflow rating.

    I did some further checking and found that HardwareSecrets said:
    The system is cooled by a 50 mm fan, which is located at the rear panel.
    It looks like the cpu is passively cooled and that there isn't a separate cpu cooling fan.






    The interior warm air is exhausted by the rear panel cooling fan on the right of the next picture and there are four screws in a square pattern that mount the fan to the rear panel.



    In the next picture, it looks like the circular black area is NOT a cooling fan.





    The last picture shows the motherboard's white 3-pin male connector for the rear panel cooling fan.
    The white 3-pin male and female connector setup is a standard push on and pull off setup for computer fans to let you easily connect the fan wires to the motherboard.

    The circular black area IS the CPU cooling fan, its attached directly to the heatsink, just on the side, rather than on top.

    Thanks for all the responses and tips guys. I've taken the unit apart, redid the thermal paste on the cpu heatsink/fan, and it still's idling at around 80+ degrees(celsius) which seems ridiculously high. Have played around with CoreTemp and RealTemp and I may have found a clue as to why it's "idling" at such a high temp. Even though task manager says CPU load is around 0%, RealTemp is saying the load is at 100%. Checking how RealTemp works(thanks UncleWebb!) it seems that this is because even though there's no actual load on the CPU, RealTemp measures how long the CPU is staying in C0 state(CPU is turned on), and this is why RealTemp reports it as saying load is still 100%. Looks like my CPU isn't entering the lower power C states(C1-C6), so keeps generating heat even though nothing is actually happening. Could be a windows problem, something may have gone awry with the power management settings as all the C states are enabled in the BIOS.


    I'll probably end up replacing all the fans anyway, just to refresh it.
    a) the rear case fan is a Y.S. Tech DC brushless fan FD125020ML, DC 12V, 0.10A.
    b) the cpu heatsink/fan was the one I was really asking about, because this one seems to be some sort of proprietary component with the fan being on the side of the heatsink. When I took the heatsink off, noticed I could just swap the fan on that. Its a Sunon MagLev GC054509VH-8A, DC5V, 1.7W fan. So either I just replace the fan or find another heatsink/fan combo which is low-profile enough to sit on top of the CPU without hitting anything in the case, seems to be a few 1U low-profile heatsink/fan packages out there. The current heatsink thats on there now, the heatsink is still getting very hot, so it looks like its doing its job, just that the fan isn't doing a very good job of cooling the heatsink down. Might be the fins on the heatsink is all gunked up with dust

    You didn't clean it anyway while you had it off ???

    yeah complete brain fart, I didn't..just thought maybe I had to repaste and maybe that alone would fix it. Completely forgot to check the fins the first time. I've just taken it off again, and this time, I vacuumed the fins out, and now it seems to "idle" at around 60 degrees which is a hell of a lot better. After I figure out the C state idle issue, it should idle much lower than that I hope which should be good enough.

    OK

    First, check that the YS Yech fan is in fact spinning. YS Tech fans don't rate that high on my fan list. Lower quarter. Maybe.
    If it's not, or you have any doubts, replace it with a Gelid FN-SX05-40 fan. The specs on the Gelid beat out the YS Tech.

    There is a BIOS 1.30 available that simply states "Change default setting." as what it changed from previous.

    60 isn't that terrible considering the case it's in.

    What's ambient there in Oz today?
